Besharam - Movie Review

Besharam - Movie Review


Ranbir Kapoor's much awaited film Besharam was released on 2nd October in about 3600 screens in India. It was his second release this year after Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani which was a box office hit with earnings around 188 crores and hence expectations with this one is also high. 

The film stars Pallavi Sharda opposite him,along with his parents Rishi Kapoor,Nitu Kapoor sharing screen space with him first time and Javed Jaffery in lead roles and is directed by Abhinav Kashyap who made his directorial debut with Salman Khan starrer Dabangg in 2010.

1.Plot : Film is about a car mechanic cum car thief Babli who with his partner Titu steals car and feeds an orphanage in which he was also brought up. He falls for a girl Tara at first sight and tries to woo her with his besharami(shamelessness). He started improving in her love but she keeps herself away from him.One day he mistakenly stole her car and feels bad about it. In his determination to bring back her car he put himself  in trouble with the bad guy Bheem Singh for whom he works. Inspector Chulbul Pandey and constable Bulbul Pandey gets involved in this situation and helps Babli in his fight with Bheem Singh. A rowdy turning into a good guy for a girl is age-old Bollywood masala film formula which needs a different approach if presented again. This approach is there but director is not clear in his approach as film fails to establish balance between action,comedy,romance and drama.

2. Promotions : It is marketed in almost every big Indian television show along with News channels and print media. The buzz around for the film is great and it scores good marks for it.

3.Music :    Music for the film is composed by Lalit Pandit who also composed "Munni Badnam Hui" for Abhinav Kashyap's Dabangg. Lyrics are penned by Rajeev Barnwaal,Nikhat Khan and Himanshu Kishan Mehra. Except one or two songs,no other song make much impact and you tend to forget them as soon as film ends. Here this movie looses much point for the fact that music is heart of Indian films, people watch a bad movie even if music is good similarly bad music keep away the audience from the movie.

3.Casting and Direction: Ranbir can be better with character,there is not much for him to show his acting skills . Rishi and Neetu has done a worst performance of their lifetime with some cheap dialogues given to them. Pallavi has limited work to do in the movie and she is average in her role. Javed Jaffery don't fit in this negative character who is neither a serious nor a comic in performance. Direction is not up to the mark,some scenes are unnecessary and he looses his grip from the plot as film progresses.

Ranbir's fan may like the movie but it is difficult for it to break any records. It may gain as there is no big movie releasing this week. In my opinion film is below average and gets only two stars from my side.

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

The Masked Life

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
